by government through fiscal policy was the real blow-up risk. so if you think of a couple places in the world that we were the most afraid of like europe, i think the actions of the ecb to at least defer the problems with the sovereigns and the bank issues in europe, if they use this time to fix the problems, we'll look back and think it's a good thing. if they deferred them, made them worse in the long term, we won't feel that way. i think something similar has happened in the united states whereby a lot of liquidity has been provided by the central bank. >> andrew, you have operations throughout all of the world. what's your sense of growth? there are troubling reports about growth slowing down which so far have been a very powerful lifeline for global growth as united states and europe weakened, particularly china where you do a lot of business. >> i don't think we're going have an '08/'09 scenario out there for the reasons lloyd was addressed. i do think the world since '08/'09 to now has not gotten to normal. of course, the obvious, which is consumption in the u.s., is not where it was.
35% to the government. when we lower marginal tax rates, we get more from the people output in the society. >> jonas, you believe we need tax increases in the long run, in the short run, what is going to get jobs. >> and there's nothing you can do to the tax code that isn't going to hurt the job market. >> lower the marginal rates. >> you say romney wants to lower the raets and remove the deduction, let's say he removes the mortgage deduction, home builder, you're going to hire more people, and if they remove it, hire more people, probably not. you're going to bring net knew revenue to the government. not going cut enough you're going to hurt the job market. now, specifically, if you hit the high end, like they want to do, let's say they did that, and yeah, that's, that's tax, when you tax people in the middle that is cost of hiring somebody so could actually need to less hiring, a worker taxes goes up and pay them more to counter at that tax cost and your success level. and going to cut at your profit, it's not a cost of hiring. so it could in theory do more damage to make
workshop and big bird. it appears easy to dismiss millions of dollars when the government faces trillion of dollars in debt. the left may be cute with a call to end funding for public broadcasting, but here's the homework the left should have done before they and president obama began their reflective aattacks. they are $388 million in assets now. in merchandise sales alone, it brought in $45 million, five times what it received in government grants. that little cute sesame workshop turns out to be a moneymaker producing hundreds of millions of dollars. we take all of that up tonight with former george bush senior adviser carl rove, and as well, the unemployment rate falling to 7.8%, employers adding just 114,000 jobs. we're talking about that, and, yes, big bird too with the congressional budget office with douglas holtz-eakin. any -- new reports two suspects were arrested in the assassination to the ambassador to libya and three other americans. the man who broke the story that the obama administration knew it was a well-planned terrorist attack within 24 hours. daily beast writer, eli

. it is time to stop rewarding our friends and punishing our enemies and having the government treat every american the same, which is a foundational principal of the rule of law. and i think mitt romney has to do more of that. has he been specific with his plan? he laid five out in the debate, which is more than the president did. that's why independents thought mitt romney did very, very well. >> let me ask you about one of the issues where they differ, medicare. that is a big deal in florida romney says he supports vouchers for medicare, a plan that is not very popular. how does play in florida with all those seniors? >> right now in florida, you've got about 12 million registered voters. 36% who are republicans, you have 40% who are democrats. and then the 24% or the remainder is going to be the most important percentage in america and i think it's 24% who are not registered republican or democrat. these are going to be the most important voters in the united states. but, let's look at medicare. you have mitt romney who says, i want to give you vouchers, which i personally don't agree
's paid for either by charity, the government or by the hospital. we don't have people that become ill that die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. joining me now sister simone campbell and former chairman of the democratic national committee, vermont governor and medical doctor, howard dean. sister simone i could see you smaking your head when i was reading mitt romney's statement there about just what you don't have to worry about if you don't have health insurance. >> he is totally out of touch with the reality that it means for people in our country. on wednesday we heard the story of margaret who died because she didn't have health insurance. she couldn't afford doctors and she knew she was sick and she stayed in her apartment until she couldn't get to the front door and finally somebody picked her up and took her to emergency. she had stage 4 cancer. people die if you don't have access to care. >> governor dean, i want to listen to a piece of mitt romney's speaking back in 2006, a couple of weeks after signing the massachusetts health care law, where he clearly
to the hospital. you get treated. you get care. and it's paid for even by charity, by the government or the hospital. we don't have people that become ill, who die in their apartment because they don't have insurance. joining me now is sister simone campbell from the catholic social justice lobby and former chairman of the national committee howard dean. sister simone, i can see out of the corner of your eye you are shaking your head when i was reading mitt romney's statement there about just what you don't have to worry about if you don't have health insurance. >> absolutely. he is totally out of touch with the reality that it means for real people in our country. on wednesday, we heard the story of mark ret kitslor who died because she couldn't afford senior and didn't have shelt insurance and she knew she was sick and stayed in her apartment until she couldn't get to the door and finally someone picked her up and took her to emergency and she had stage four cancer and died from a cancer that was untreatable at that point. it could have been prevented. it was wrong. people die if y
. we've got one news item, a number from the government in the background here, it's the producer price index up. 1.1%, month over month and that's a big increase, however, if you take out food and energy, there was no inflation at the producer price level. it was unchanged. and that's not a market mover, certainly not this morning. day after the debate on a day when the european union, incredibly, wins the peace prize. more on that in just a moment. how is the market opening? as i said pretty much dead flat this friday morning, we're down a fraction of a point. down two points in the very early going this morning. now, we've got j.p. morgan, they made 5.7 billion dollars profit in 13 weeks, so, nicole, tell me, where does the stock open on a day like that with a profit like that? >> well, you know, the stock story right now, you you see it's down 1.4%, but initially we did see j.p. morgan getting a pop on a great quarter. now, you have jamie dimon on a conference call and analysts conference call now giving a little more cautionary tone going forward and that's why you're seeing the st
in the embassy for 20 years. this comes as yemen's government wages war against an al-qaida branch growing in strength. a tragic turn of events in the case was a colorado girl. they found a body in the park a few miles from where the park is. they are saying that it is the girl's body but the police are not confirming. >> at this time we are not making a connection to jessica ridgeway. the crime scene will be from now to tomorrow morning. >> gretchen: they believe she was kidnapped. we expect to learn more 8:30 a.m. eastern time. a worker rescued from a garage that landed on top of him. rescue crews pulled him out of the rubble at 1:00 k. and he is in critical condition. two other workers were killed and eight others were hurt. >> i had seen a lot of smoke and the building shaking and it started collapsing. >> gretchen: the garage under construction . one worker is still missing. lance armstrong not only used illegal steroids to win the tour de france. a stunning report said he juiced his teammates. 25 people testified against him including 11 teammates. his attorney said it is a hatchet j
said, render unto caesar and render unto god what is god's. we have government ordained by god. if you look at moses, he was involved in government. if you look at joseph, he was involved in government. all throughout the bible, i mean, in the bible you see strong personalities who were involved in government. it is a right. we must support those things that will provide the quality of life and will provide a standard of living for human beings. so, any time you suppress that, any time you take away that, it has to be demonic and diabolical. >> the last question, i want to talk about policy, aside from politics. and the president endorsed gay marriage as a policy. do you think that will affect the black voter turnout in your congregation and across the country? >> that's an excellent question. as soon as he made that statement as a pastor, as a student of the bible, as one who believes in the word of god. we certainly cannot support gay marriages, but we certainly know that the president is the president for all people. he did not, in fact, legislate gay marriages. so, at the end of th
saw was a different approach to governance on display and a very different set of policies he was underscoring but not actually going off any of the policies he had espoused up to that night. >> i think you're right. what's been different was tone more than substance, style more than substance. i also think it's not a surprise that that's what he did at a debate that is not strictly for the republican audience. i think he's appealing to a broader group of voters. one of the things that romney has been very self-conscious about this entire general election is being called a flip-flopper. he was concerned about this in the primaries, but he has stuck with this on the issue of immigration until recently. he has actually had some positions that have modulated. he took a stand on obama's executive action about some temporary visas being issued and this was the first time he had commented on it in about 100 days and it was the day before the debate. he gave a little more meat on the bones the day before the debate about tax policy. but you're not seeing him change his stance and i t
for the government to intrude in our resefr. >> a lawyer for the city says the film isn't journalism because it advocates for the five. in a statement the city says if they want an open arg the facts, they should encourage the flim makers not it to hide anything. the filmmaker claim the documentary sticks to the fact. what do you make of the city trying to go after the outtakes? >> they need to stop dragging their feet. they won't find anything other than what we know. that we were innocent, and this is just going to continue to further restate that. >> usef says no matter the outcome, he may never fully escape his nightmare that started in this park. susan candiotti, cnn, new york. >>> president barack obama is in los angeles at this hour. he's there raising cash at a fund-raiser. you may recall he just set a record of $181 million in september. white house correspondent dan lothian is traveling with the president. dan, at this point he's on record to raise almost a billion dollars now, and that's not including those outside super-pacs. how much is he expecting to raise tonight? >> reporter
there right now that's a bigger deal for people over the age of 65 than the future of medicare. government health care program for those people, about 54 million americans rely on it. long-term financial health now is very shaky. the scary part, though, is that each campaign says the other side's plans for dealing with that are terrible. >> obamacaretakes $716 from medicare to spend on obamacare. >> all you seniors, have you been denied choices or lost medicare advantage? >> they haven't put a credible solution on the table. >> their ideas are old and their ideas are bad and they eliminate the guarantee of medicare. >> this is their essential claim, that my opponent will destroy medicare. is that really true? let's take a look at some of the facts and consider it. i'll bring in some tools here. look at the white house plan, to begin with. the landscape they're dealing with. the cost of medicare generally will increase over the next 10 years till it reaches about $1 trillion annually. they want to reduce that by about 10%. that's the orange part here, the part they're cutting out. now, the
or even libya, he says he would work with the government of libya to find the guys that murdered our ambassador. well, obviously that's what the obama administration is doing. >> you have a lot of fodder for your weekend show, so we'll be watching it and also for suzanne malveaux's shows which is up and coming. thank you for taking the time to be on our show today. fareed zakaria, and as i sign off, i do want remind you "newsroom international" starts right now with suzanne malveaux. >> kuhn dem the president for leading from behind, declaring it is time to change -- criticized the obama administration for not having an overall strategy in this region, and here's how he summed it up. the know the president hopes for a safer, freer, aligned middle east with us. i share this hope, but hope is not a strategy. we can't support our friends and defeat our enemies in the middle east when our words are not backed up by deeds. >> now, wolf, we know he was referring to a lot of the protests around in the region, and even the killing of the u.s. ambassador in benghazi, libya, but when you liste
in power coming up in china. typically there is inaction on the part of the government in terms of huge programs where it be stimulus or not. many expect you may not get something substantive still march. there's also a great deal concern about the financial system. you hear it a lot. we all talk about the lack of validity of many of the statistic that is we still rely on. but within the financial system itself, where the debt really is, a number of metrics that are followed and thought to be worthy of following are not looking great. there's continued concerned. >> we're running smack into -- our companies have to tell the truth. but there's a huge cohort of companies in our company that don't need a whole lot of growth. so we're funneling into winners and leaving aside cyclicals as losers. >> world bank goes from 8.2 to 7.7. if you think 5 to 6 is the real number, should we be bracing for more -- >> yeah. look, these guys want to do everything incremental but the data's bad. i saw someone recommending gm today on strength of china sales. everyone wants to get ahead of the turn. but no
the chaos. stewart, an honest and smart liberal person. he believes the federal government should directly help americans who can't or won't help themselves. stewart supports an antistate -- nanny state where everyone is provided live necessary knits and economic outcomes are guaranteed. i disagree with that not because of the intent. the intent is noble. but simply because it's impossible. the constitution provides americans protection so they can pursue happiness. but the founding fathers did not guarantee happiness or material well-being. if you try do that, you will bankrupt the nation. and that's what's happening right now with the growing $16 trillion debt. stewart and i previewed what we'll all be voting on come november 6. do you want a nanny state or do you want a self-reliant nation? that's what's at stake in this election. now, the left wing press not going to tell you that. it portrays president obama as a moderate. the right wing media says he's a socialist, a communist, bents on destroying traditional america. but stewart and i pinpointed the real situation. nanny state versu
government austerity cuts. pensioners clashed with riot police and burned an eu flag. german chancellor angela merkel is scheduled to arrive in athens at about 6:30 eastern time today for a six hour visit. police banned protests in most of central athens and 6,000 officers are trying to keep control. this is merkel's first stop will greece since the debt crisis kree resulted back in 2009. and carolyn roth will be joining us live. >>> and both president obama and mitt roy in will be in ohio today. voters in the swing state are getting their last chance to register for next month's election. the polls are now all over the map. pew has romney up four points, but gallup says the positive jobs report gave president obama a five point boost. among our guests, ken langone and donald trump. and focusing on issues of foreign policy and national security, we have senator john mccain. and by the way, if you went to sleep early last night, the texans beat the jets 23-17. this win brings the texans perfect record this season to 5-0. we will have more in squawk sports. first andrew has the morning's
when it comes time to actually govern. who's empowered in the house republican caucus who's calling the shots. who's empowered in mitch mcconnell and who's empowered in the world on conservative wonke wonkery. it is which political coalition you trust than what numbers are showing up. >> ryan was speaking to a constituency that doesn't really exist. the people who are never going to grow old, never going to be vulnerable. it's what mitt romney was saying. if you're over 55, don't listen. >> stop listening, yeah. >> and ryan was saying, for the old people who we've already made a contract with, that old contract is in place, but we've got a new one for people who are never going to need anything, are never -- shall never going to be vulnerable in the way that people who are already old are. but those people aren't -- >> they're not a different kind of person, they're just in a different stage in the life cycle. >> those people know it too. >> there's a consistent problem with republicans addressing issues of spending. they're two things that they do have to address. both of those it'
biden responding to paul ryan's criticism of the government stimulus package. >> he sent me two letters saying, by the way, can you send me some stimulus money for companies here in the state of wisconsin. we sent millions of dollars. you know why he said -- >> you did ask for stimulus money, consider ek money, correct? >> on two occasions we asked for constituents applying for grants. >> what a debate. did biden help the president's case last night, after the president's tepid performance last week? >> right, he was -- he was sort of the polar opposite of the president. if the president had no passion, joe biden had all passion, all the time. and his job last night as we were saying after the debate was to kind of right the ship, the democratic ship. and i think he did that. because for all of the base of the democratic party that was really disenchanted with the president's performance, disappointed, i think joe biden gave them something to root for. i will say that paul ryan also passed a threshold last night, which is that he seemed very credible, very fluent on foreign policy, whic
. >> not in 1972 when he was up senator george mcgovern challenged him to a debate. historian ken hughes from the university of virginia found these tapes of president nixon. in this never before heard recording nixon cites national security concerns as a reason for not debating. >> it wouldn't serve the interests of the country particularly at this time when very important negotiations are taking place involving matters of very great importance to the nation and which cannot be discussed, cannot and should not be discussed in a debate forum. >> reporter: at the time the vietnam war was at issue. and the president gives instructions for a statement from his campaign denying mcgovern's debate request. >> what should we say? that the president that no incumbent president should debate his opponent. >> that's right. >> the differences between these two are so great. >> reporter: richard nixon can't resist saying if there were a debate he would win. >> nixon was a champion debater as far as he was concerned and completely destroy george mcgovern i think if given a chance. >> of course, having a d
has a conspiracy theory. why would i think that? >> government. not sure which one but it's a government ploy somewhere. keep the kids out of the water. good morning, everyone. we have active weather that's going to happen. thunderstorms pushing through the nashville area and tennessee. a weak storm with cold, chilly rain. this is the beginning of an active weather pattern. if you are in the middle of the country, new thunderstorms popping up here. areas of new mexico. after a quiet first two weeks of october, we are going to have the first weather event starting tomorrow. here is a look at the storms as they push through the area. light rain now. they are racing through central portions of tennessee. the drive on interstate 40 is the worst drive in the country with the storms crossing the interstate as we speak. near springfield, missouri, a lot of lightning strikes. near the springfield area, i'm sure that interstate is not fun, either. isolated strong storms, an area of yellow. it's tomorrow that the storm heads out to the central plains. minisevere weatherout break, po
governing. >> big maher -- bill moore. said it was like michael jackson on tranquilizers. >> you know what andrew called it a disaster. >> i think he will do quite well in the next two debates so if he did quite fine off the cuff but he doesn't get the hard questions. >> four minutes more speaking time during than 90 minutes than mitt romney did and he made far fewer points or punches. >> you are asking this part of the press to comment. i got to tell you it was not the best. i also have to say that part of it, i think, he didn't -- we always say you invite the person in your living room for the next four years. in the baltimore sun also said that mitt romney won the debate because he talked a little bit about his personal journey. the president didn't talk about that at all. >> jon: next on news watch, was the president's poor showing the fault of the debate's moderator. >> middle next have been buried. they have been crushed. >> the media gave mitt romney high marks for debate performance. how does the media rate the job of the moderator? that is next. for the spender who needs a little
. official announcement coming out next week from the government. 1.5% to 1.7%, it ain't huge. past few years, let's look at that. benefits increased 3.6% this year because inflation was higher. what's coming next year is better than what happened in 2009 and 2010 when checks didn't go up at all. you want to blame congress but you can't blame congress for this minuscule increase coming next year. cost of living adjustment is based on the consumer price index. cpi measures inflation, e price you pay for things like food and clothing and fuel. if prices are up over the past year, those social security checks go up. and if prices haven't moved or they fall, social security checks stay the same. i guess to sort of put the slamation point sla exclamation point on this, at least they're going up a bit instead of staying the same. >> alison kosik, thank you very much. >>> more people around the country getting sick and dying from a rare meningitis outbreak. dr. gupta make ace starting discovery while into digging as to how this happened. hahahaha! hooohooo, hahaha! this is awesome! folks who save hu
. our government it sparing no effort in tracking down the terrorists who perpetrated this attack. >> molly is joining us live in washington. molly. >> hi, jamie. a former cia director and a former homeland security director are saying vice president biden said it was erroneously linked by the obama administration to a protest over video is because the intelligence community was providing that information. general michael hayden, who led the cis, and the former homeland security secretary, both officials in the gorge w bush administration, said they are, quote, disappointed by the vice president's remarks and go on to say in a statement, quote, any failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who should have listened to and acted on available intelligence." the vice president also said in the debate the white house had not been alerted to any additional requests for security in lib bra. the white house later clarified that remark saying that security decisions for embassy facilities and personnel are made by the state
likely to say it was because of his position that the government should spend less or that the government should be smaller. >> reproductive rights. >> reproductive rights and that, by the way, primarily for young women is about birth control. it's not really a bedroom issue, more of a bank account issue. >> can i ask you when i was reading through -- i got the transcript, i was reading through the unedited transcript and i have to say i was really kind of shocked that he went into the contraception issue and talked about his daughters. >> absolutely. and i had the opportunity to interview him in 2008 and he did the same thing. i mean, he really does personalize health issues when he's talking about women's cancer issues, he references his mother's struggles with ovarian cancer -- >> it's kind of weird to have a dad talk about his teenage daughters when it comeso the national issue of contraception. >> it is. it's one of those things that some candidates are comfortable with and others nor not. i think the point he was trying to make was not to politicize his relationship with them one ho
twice? there were actually al qaeda flags flying above government buildings. when i went to libya last saturday. i was there most of the day, not a single person ever mentioned a video. this administration continues to have a lot of questions that go unanswered. in fact, compounded by the fact that the white house, the vice president, they continue -- they are just not being straight with the american people. they have a lot to answer for. >> congressman chaffets, of course, the statement released by chertoff and hayden is this. >> given what's been announced about the intelligence available before and after the september 11th attack. it is clear this the failure was not on the part of the intelligence community but on the part of the white house decision makers who should have acted on available intelligence. blaming those who put their lives on the line is not the kind of leadership this country needs. >> chaffets was instrumental to getting the answers. basically what he says you don't need lots of intelligence when your consulate has already been attacked. when the british ambassad
by the chavis government. it has happened already. i know another company was taken over by the chavez government. and the reality is that nobody really knows what is going to happen. so that's something that can be expected in the next six years. >> here is why we care and why we're talking about it. gas, oil, right? let me look down. they're the fourth largest exporter of oil to the united states. one of the top oil producing countries in the world but more than 35% of the population lives below the poverty line. as paula mentioned, economists are worried they could go off the cliff here. she mentioned default in a couple of months. listen to what some economists are saying. >> they have already reached point where the current situation can't continue, a continuation of the current policy framework could culminate in a crisis effectively. >> right now, at least, we need the oil when you hear the precarious situation that is their economy, should we be worried? >> i find the situation very ironic. we, the united states, get about 8% to 9% of the oil from venezuela, a socialist country
to create 7 million jobs. we think that government taking 28% of a family and business's income is enough. president obama thinks that the government ought to be able to take as much as 44.8% of a small business's income. look, if you taxed every person in a successful small business making over $250,000 at 100%, it would only run the government for 98 days. if everybody who paid taxes last year doubled their taxes this year, we would still have a $300 billion deficit. you see, there aren't enough rich people and small businesses to tax to pay for all their spending. and so the next time you hear them say, don't worry about it, we'll get a few wealthy people to pay their fair share, watch out, middle class, the tax bill is coming to you. that's why we're saying we need punishment tax reform. let's look at it this way. 8 out of 10 businesses, they file their taxes as individuals, not corporations. where i come from overseas, which is lake superior, the canadians, they drop their tax rates to 15%. the average tax rate on businesses in the industrialized world is 25% and the president wants
